Where on HDD to stash \win98? Or with WinXP home ??
Posted on 2002-03-21
With Win98, installations of apps and any changes to networks (and a bunch of other situations) prompted Windows to ask for user to boot the Win98 CD for a quickie. Lots of peeps just copied the \win98 directory on their HDD (once HDs got so big % cheap). I did, but...
A) The OS in my Win98 box soon started to offer my choice of my HDD's \win98 instead of just booting the CD-ROM. Still, it was inconvenient that the OS never did seem to remember which partition I had stashed my \win98 on. It was an annoyance to repeatedly need to change the offered location of the precious files from F:\win98 to
E:\win98. Before I give the old win98 box to my son, can I correct that config annoyance?
B) is it still a good idea- with WinXP- to copy some such huge chunk right onto my HDD? Which directory if so?
